Apple's upcoming low-cost iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 will be a mid-end device, according to a new report.
J.P. Morgan analysts Gokul Hariharan and Mark Moskowitz recently spoke to AllThingsD about the low-cost model and stated that Apple will not use lower end components to build this new iPhone. Instead, Apple will take a different approach creating a mid-range device that is a bit cheaper than the regular iPhone.
The analysts stated that Apple's approach with this iPhone will be similer to its iPad Mini release as the company used older components that were top-of-the-line just one year prior to create a lower-cost device that could compete in that market. The iPad Mini also costs more than some of its fiercest competitors such as the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire HD and still manages to sell really well. more >>
